The No Dump Alliance – made up of spokespeople and members from Traditional Owner groups, church and faith groups, trade unions, civil society and environmental groups – was formed in 2016 to fight plans for a high-level international nuclear waste dump in South Australia.

The government is targeting a site called Napandee, near the town of Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula.  This proposed nuclear waste dump site is strongly contested by people in the farming community and it is unanimously opposed by Barngarla Traditional Owners.

Every attempt to establish a radioactive waste facility in South Australia and the Northern territory has been met with First Nations and community resistance. And every time, we have won.

Irati Wanti- the poison, leave it
After a six-year battle, the federal government abandoned plans to impose a national nuclear waste dump in central SA in 2004. The campaign was led by senior Aboriginal women − the Kupa Piti Kungka Tjuta − many of them victims of the British atomic bomb tests half a century ago.

The proposed dump at Wallerberdina was opposed by many Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners, who were not consulted about the nomination of the site. After years of pursuing the site, it was abandoned in 2019.

South Australians have fought and won nuclear waste battles before.

And we’ll do it again!
